. not the past four or five years. globalization has sent millions of u.s. jobs overseas. a struggling education system has left many americans unprepared for the high-tech knowledge jobs of today, and income inequality is growing. the wealth gap between the richest americans and the typical family more than doubled over the past 50 years. a recent report from the economic policy institute found the rich were 288 times wealthier than the median household in 2010. eduardo porter is a columnist for the "new york times." welcome to the program. you say in america we've built a more cut-throat form of capitalism than other industrialized nations, as you put, it quote, more than citizens of other countries, we fend to believe that success, like failure, is deserved. by eduardo, will the outcome of this election really change the fundamental nature of our government, of the kind of capitalism that we've created? >> i would say no because the capitalism we've created is not a function of a democratic administration or a republican administration. in fact, over the last 30 years through democratic and r
that says when we educate a poor child, we'll all be better off. that says when we fund the research of a young scientist, her new discovery will benefit every american. we need a vision that says we don't just look out for ourselves. we look out for one another. we look out for future generations, and we meet those obligations by working together. that's the change we believe in. that's what this election is all about. now, let's be clear. achieving this agenda won't be easy. it's never been easy. we always knew that. back in 2008 when we talked about change, i told i wasn't just talking about changing presidents. i wasn't just talking about changing parties. i was talking about changing our politics. i ran because the voices of the american people, your voice, had been shut out of our democracy for way too long by lobbyists and special interests and politicians who believe that compromise is somehow a dirty word, by folks who would say anything to win office and do anything to stay there. the protectors of the status quo are a powerful force in washington. over the last four years
a five-point plan but they have nothing underneath it, no plan to revietallize our education system, no plan other than to give the oil companies everything they're asked for including continued subsidies but nothing for new energy. and then of course the biggest whopper is they're going to take care of our deficits when they propose $7 trillion in new spending between tax cuts for the well think and the pentagon spending for which they have no plan to pay. so saying you have a plan for the future doesn't mean you do. what he has is the one-point plan the president has been talking about, which is the same plan that got us into this mess in the first place. >> the main argument they're making, he did it in his opening remarks in the last debate and the closing remarks, is that more people are unemployed, more people are on foot stamps, more people are in poverty right now than they were four years ago, why re-elect a president who has a dismal record they say like this. >> the reason they're behind in this race, wolf, is because that's been their mantra from the beginning. everybody
